Training a bit last night

I trained last night, but only chest exercises and some abs. I did not feel the energy to do biceps with the busy day I had yesterday. When training, I used to do two body parts a day. Sometimes take the next day off. I would make gains of 5 lbs per month (man) in some exercises for strength. I never took any performance enhancing drugs. The fact, is that if you do for instance, the bench press 2 times a week, or your shoulders 2 times a week, usually you will make incredible gains in that exercise you are performing, naturally.

If I could not do the bench press twice during a week, I would do tricep close grip bench presses, as a substitute. And, you can work around your schedule to try to maximize gains. Right now, working shift work, sometimes quite a few nights straight, it really makes me wonder if I will ever get back into it hard. I usually am too tired, or bothered during the day to work out after a night shift. Then, sometimes one shoulder does bother me. I am hoping it comes back, but working out light I hardly feel the problem. It is due to an old injury back in my early twenties, when pushing too hard for too long, probably. It may have also been due to the behind the neck shoulder press. I was doing too much, and, it is an awkward exercise to do.

My advice to young people training today, is to avoid the awkward, movement exercises. Try to replace them with some exercises that are a quick flow movement. Less joint movement in two directions, or jolty, is much better for you. Well, time to go.. Have a good day, no news on the book.. Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
